Noob from Michigan


Jan 7, 2017
Not totally new to chickens at this point.
Moved to a rural-ish section of south-east Michigan in 2016.
By early fall of this last year we acquired two roos both white/black. They were dumped on the side of the road just down a bit from our house. Both white/black, our best guess is silkie mix. One was killed by a predator. The other we have managed to keep alive, and make happy.
Picked up chicks this afternoon from TSC. 3 Jersey Giants, 3 Banties, 3 Silver Laced. Good start.
They're chirping happily at the moment.

Planning on adding more. Particularly interested in ducks too. Our roo likes grapes and before I ever acquired the roo, I never would have guessed how darned smart they are.
Specifically raising for eggs. Interested in learning more about rarer breeds like Icies.

Oh uh three kids, one husband, 2 cats, one dog. :)
G'Day from down under mdavison :frow Welcome!
